Senator Tom DaschleFormer Senate Majority and Minority Leader Tom Daschle will provide the keynote address at the American College of Radiology’s Radiology Leadership Institute™ (RLI) Annual Event, July 25-28, 2013, at the Kellogg School of Management on Northwestern University’s Evanston, IL campus. The title of his talk is: Getting It Done: What’s Next for Healthcare Reform.

“The success of our specialty depends on preparing radiology’s current and future leaders to meet the challenges ahead. This year’s annual event will focus on essential topics such as negotiations, strategic alliances and intrapreneurship. As a political leader with significant health care legislation experience, Senator Daschle has proven himself as an expert in these key areas and we are honored to have him deliver the keynote address at this year’s event,” said Cynthia S. Sherry, MD, FACR, medical director of RLI and chair of the ACR Commission on Leadership and Practice Development.

The architect of President Obama’s healthcare plan, Senator Daschle is one of the longest serving Senate Democratic Leaders in history and the only one to serve twice as both Majority and Minority Leader. Today, he is a senior policy advisor to the law firm of DLA Piper where he provides clients with strategic advice on public policy issues such as climate change, energy, health care, trade, financial services and telecommunications.

Senator Daschle has distinguished his expertise in health care through the publication of Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis. He is currently a member of the Health Policy and Management Executive Council at the Harvard School of Public Health, in addition to the Global Policy Advisory Council for the Health Worker Migration Initiative. In 2007, Senator Daschle joined with former Majority Leaders George Mitchell, Bob Dole and Howard Baker to create the Bipartisan Policy Center — the only Washington, DC-based think tank that actively promotes bipartisanship.

The RLI Annual Event combines radiology experts with renowned business school faculty to provide real-world training that can be put into immediate practice. In addition to negotiations, strategic alliances and intrapreneurship, featured topics at this year’s event include operations management, leadership and managing teams.
